Los Angeles Lakers, tweet from Jeanie Buss, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, trade rumors

Lakers Governor Jeanie Buss took to Twitter on Sunday night to send a cryptic message to… someone.

Was it LeBron James, the team or the fans? We don’t know who this was actually intended for, but we really only know one thing: he misses Kobe Bryant.

“I miss KB,” she wrote, referring to the late Lakers great, Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in January 2020.

“He would understand and explain everything that I’m not allowed to do,” she continued.

“Honestly, he was the greatest Laker of all time. He understood the team more than himself. That means your rewards would come if you valued the team’s goals over your own, then everything would fall into place. Everyone can answer.

However, who she expects an answer from is up for debate. It could be aimed at LeBron James who is a free agent next season. Perhaps that’s a message for impending free agent and highest-paid player Russell Westbrook, who still struggles to consistently hit a jump shot despite being in the league for 14 seasons. This could be a message for fans who want to compete for a title this season more than anyone.

On “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd, Fox Sports’ Ric Bucher dove into the tweet to see the real meaning.

They agreed that Buss was beckoning Kyrie Irving, who is training in Los Angeles these days, according to Bucher.

“Those I know around the Lakers think this sets the stage for Kyrie Irving on the Lakers,” Bucher said. “You are the leader of this franchise, don’t make anyone feel like there’s something you can’t fix and you want Kobe to be there to fix it.”

If this is really his way of speculating on an impending transfer from Irving, the Lakers immediately become one of the most chaotic and interesting teams in NBA history.

The Buss family and the entire Los Angeles front office will have a lot of work to do to prepare for a title shot this season after missing the playoffs last year.
